WELL Building Standard: Health, Wellness, Your Building and You
Vuk Vujovic to discuss people-focused health and wellness building standard at Illinois statewide sustainability conference
[Normal, IL] – Vuk Vujovic, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP, director of sustainability & energy at Legat Architects, will present: “Health, Wellness, Your Building and You – What Does WELL Building Standard Mean for Higher Education?” at the 2017 Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) annual sustainability conference held at Heartland Community College in Normal, Illinois on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.
Based on research with physicians, scientists, and industry professionals, the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL) is the first building standard to focus exclusively on the health and wellness of the people in buildings.
WELL consists of unique categories, preconditions, and optimization features that combine best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research. The resulting system uses the built environment to support health and well-being and is intended to work in harmony with LEED and the Living Building Challenge.
WELL can be applied across many institutional building categories, including higher education. Join us to learn about the new WELL Building Standard and opportunities for implementation on your campus.
